  2. You are welcome Larrie Looks like I'm firing on all cylinders today
  3. Thanks for confirming. I thought I was missing a trick ! I can relate to the agony of waiting........thank god I'm away on holiday next week.............
  4. Great Is it any different to what my understanding ? i.e. order number from dealer and updates from BMW Genius ?
  5. Your dealer will be able to let you know the order number.
  6. Oh brilliant. Thank you for that piece of information. Good to know it doesn't mean the car has been damaged !
  7. Ah, interesting point. But I would have thought any repair jobs would have been done back at the factory during the final inspection. Although I guess it could have been damaged en-route.....in which case it would be repaired after it got the dealer. I can't imagine they would have a workshop set up at what ever location they keep these cars. It is a strange name for that code though...... I might ask the BMW Genius guy next time, although it seems beyond what the screen tells them, they don't know anything else....
  8. Interesting..........an extra code... BMW Genius just gave an status of 9646 with delivery to retailer by 29th. I've been told delivery from dealer to expect delivery on the 6th.

  11. While being bored waiting for the new car to arrive, I started thinking what the equivalent MPG will be for a 330e or 530e depending on how many electric miles we can get from them. This is what I came up with, but by all means, please check and let me know if you don't agree. My assumptions are based on my 28 miles journey each way to work and an estimate of 40 mpg on petrol only. I'm happy to dial in different assumptions if you wanted to see how the figures come out. Miles on Electric Miles on petrol gal. of petrol used mpg 28 40 0 28 0.70 40.00 1 27 0.68 41.48 2 26 0.65 43.08 3 25 0.63 44.80 4 24 0.60 46.67 5 23 0.58 48.70 6 22 0.55 50.91 7 21 0.53 53.33 8 20 0.50 56.00 9 19 0.48 58.95 10 18 0.45 62.22 11 17 0.43 65.88 12 16 0.40 70.00 13 15 0.38 74.67 14 14 0.35 80.00 15 13 0.33 86.15 16 12 0.30 93.33 17 11 0.28 101.82 18 10 0.25 112.00 19 9 0.23 124.44 20 8 0.20 140.00 21 7 0.18 160.00 22 6 0.15 186.67 23 5 0.13 224.00 24 4 0.10 280.00 25 3 0.08 373.33 26 2 0.05 560.00 27 1 0.03 1120.00
  12. Great news. Looking forward to your review. We like to take a driving holiday through France once a year as well, so will be eager to see how you managed charging, or not !, of your car.
  13. Had a message from the dealer saying they can deliver on 29th Sep Typically I'll be on holiday then, so need to push delivery back a few days. Checked with BMW Genius and status is 9620 - At sea.

  14. Although the delivery sucks, it's good that you have the order number and can now bypass 3rd parties and talk directly with BMW. When mine was at 1100, they originally said delivery of 01/01/2019. Just for my amusement, I went on line and asked them every couple of weeks, and then all of a sudden the delivery got brought forward by 3 month. So fingers crossed you will have a similar experience. Just like you, if delivery was going to be early next year, I was all set to tell them to delay registering the car until March 1st.
  15. Thats good to know. I don't suppose you have heard anything about when they are going to bring out their home charging app ?
